Mercury was hitting on all eight cylinders in the mid-50s thanks to cars like this gorgeous 1956 Mercury Monterey hardtop. Wearing Mercurys trademark yellow over black paint scheme and packing a rumbling Y-block V8, its a fantastic heavy cruiser for the guy that thinks Fords are just too ordinary. Add in a few upgrades and it becomes a favorite car for cruise nights and long-distance runs where comfort matters. Mercurys styling was a bit more extroverted than Fords, and the longer chassis allowed designers to create bodies that were a bit more upscale-looking. The 56 models were slightly revised from 1955, adding those peaked headlights and the wide chrome grille and bumper assembly that make this car easy to recognize even from a distance. The Saffron Yellow over Tuxedo Black combination is dramatic and incredibly appealing, showcasing the Mercs long lines and beautiful side trim. Theres plenty of chrome and stainless, dont worry about that, and the sweeping strip of stainless that stretches from the headlights to the door, where theres a neat little intake grille, makes the paint job look especially dramatic. Its an older paint job with some use on it, so its not perfect, but as it glides by, nobody is going to miss seeing this big coupe. Its just gorgeous. Most of the chrome and stainless trim is original, so its showing some age and could use some work, but even as it sits, this car makes one heck of a statement. The matching yellow and black interior was recently restored and looks pretty much as it would have in 1956. Vertical pleats on the seat, fantastic door panels that seem to echo the outside trim, and an arching instrument panel all make the Mercury feel very unique when youre behind the wheel. New black carpets help with the luxurious atmosphere and its quite possible that the dash is wearing original paint, so you know the color combination is legit. The big steering wheel has a leather wrap that feels substantial and helps muscle the big coupe around corners and the arching instrument panel puts all the gauges right in front of the driver. The original AM radio and clock are not working, which isnt really a surprise, but those things are easy and inexpensive to upgrade to make this a first-rate cruiser. The trunk is finished with black carpet mats, so it has a clean look that seems right in an upmarket Merc. Ford continually upgraded the Y-block V8 and by 1956, the Mercury version was displacing 312 cubic inches and making 225 horsepower. It feels muscular and torquey on the road and moves the big coupe with relative ease. Recently rebuilt, it still looks pretty original under the hood, which doesnt get in the way of the smooth idle or rumbling exhaust. A weekend spent cleaning things up would pay big dividends if thats what you prefer. Chrome valve covers dress it up a bit and that giant air cleaner is original equipment. Its nicely sorted and runs great, working well with the Merc-O-Matic automatic transmission to make motoring around town effortless. Manual steering lightens up nicely at speed and the suspension has that big car ride that makes cars like this a joy to drive. The dual exhaust system features Flowmaster mufflers, so its a bit racier than stock but the sound will ensure nobody complains. Flashy chrome wheels somehow look right on the vintage Merc and they carry right-sized wide whitewall radials for some 50s flair. A great entry-level cruiser that isnt the same thing everybody else owns. Big car comfort, Ford reliability, and a fantastic color combination make this Monterey a smart choice for anyone looking to have fun in an old car. Call today!
Both the Mustang and the Cougar grew in 1971, but the Cougar seems to wear the extra size better than its cousin. This 1971 Mercury Cougar XR7 convertible represents either an affordable vintage cruiser or a great starting point for an amazing resto-mod. The paint is recent and nicely done, and we like the burgundy color that gives it a grown-up look that suits the Cougars upscale mission. The chiseled good looks reflect both the pony car and Lincoln DNA in its family, and adding big wheels and some attitude only enhances the image. The narrow front grille with power dome hood are certainly reminiscent of Lincolns of the same period, while the kicked-up quarter panels behind the doors are pure Mustang, making for a very attractive package. The late-model color works quite well on the vintage bodywork, and its easy to imagine it with, say, a blacked-out hood and a modest spoiler out back for some balance. But even as it sits, its rather handsome and the Cougars shape has aged quite gracefully. The front bumper is in good original condition, but well admit the rear bumper needs to be re-chromed if your intention is to keep it stock. But beyond that, this is a great-looking car. If youve driven an early 70s Mustang, youll feel right at home here. The bucket seats are a little wider and a little softer, but the array of round gauges are pure pony car. Its possible that the interior is original, so the drivers seat has a split and the fabric is a little faded, but new seat covers are included with the sale. Youll note nice black carpets on the floors to provide some welcome contrast and a center console adds to the performance vibe. The gauges are custom white-faced dials that look great in a machine-turned instrument panel that definitely works in the XR7. For entertainment, the original radio was dumped in favor of a JVC AM/FM/CD stereo, although the door speakers have yet to be installed (another opportunity for you to do it your way). The power convertible top is in good shape and the trunk is outfitted with a full mat set and a full-sized spare tire. Fords 302 cubic inch V8 was torquey and very user-friendly in the Cougar, offering good performance without being fussy. This one has been significantly upgraded with FITech fuel injection, an Edelbrock intake manifold, an HEI distributor, and a set of long-tube exhaust headers, so you know where the real money was spent. With those cool Edelbrock Racing valve covers and a serpentine belt drive system, along with a set of adjustable strut tower braces, it looks far more modern under the hood than youd expect. Power steering and power front disc brakes were standard equipment on the heavier, more luxury-oriented Cougar, but the recent Flowmaster dual exhaust system has a wonderful low burble that totally sounds like a muscle car. The automatic transmission snaps off quick shifts, so this Couger feels a lot like a late-model 5.0 Mustang rather than a vintage cruiser. The undercarriage is pretty original, but this car has spent most of its life in a warm climate so while its a little grungy, you wont be worried about its structural strength while youre out cruising. Its also fitted with 4-wheel disc brakes which look ideal behind late-model Mustang wheels carrying 235/55/17 performance radials. Lots of money was spent where it matters, making this Cougar a blast to drive and only a few upgrades away from being something truly special. Take this opportunity and make it your own. Call now!
Most folks just think of the Cougar as Mercurys version of the Mustang, but the truth is that theyre very different cars with very different missions. While it packed all the same performance hardware as the Mustang, the Cougar was actually a very upscale, luxurious car that was both larger and better appointed than the Mustang. With a unique body and interior, the Cougar is instantly recognizable, and nice ones, like this 1968 coupe, are an absolute pleasure to own and drive. Originally painted code M Polar White, this big cat was treated to a bare-metal respray about eight years ago, and the modern urethane finish is more in tune with the cars luxury/performance mission. Thanks to quality work, the paint remains in very good condition, and all appearances suggest that this car was never rusty or a basket case. Instead, it appears to be a nicely maintained car that has never needed major surgery, and the factory-style panel gaps and alignment bear this out. Its more or less the same as Fords familiar Wimbledon White, but nobody can argue that it isnt handsome on Mercurys awesome performance coupe. The chrome is similarly nice and may be original, and the stainless rocker moldings and window surrounds are still bright and shiny. The Cougar offered unique lighting, with folding headlights up front and sequential turn signals out back, and they all work properly. Interior design in the Cougar was clearly inspired by aircraft, and it has a very cool 60s vibe that makes you think of Steve McQueen and Sean Connery movies when youre at the wheel. This is also a place where you could take this Cougar up a few notches. The front buckets are original, as are the door panels, and theyre showing their age. Fortunately, replacements are inexpensive and will pay big dividends if you upgrade. The vast dashboard features round gauges with delicate markings and needles, reminiscent of the Smiths gauges found in British sports cars and the Shelby Cobra. Especially cool are the switches for interior lighting and the very aircraft-like levers for the A/C and ventilation controls to the drivers left. Even the shifter for the automatic transmission, sans console, looks like the throttle lever of a jet. Too cool. A modern AM/FM stereo has been fitted in the original location, and there was no cutting, so it looks like it belongs and can be returned to original without worries. The surprisingly roomy trunk features a new mat and spare tire cover. Lift the Cougars hood and youll find an F-code 302 cubic inch V8 that was rebuilt 10,000 miles ago. The 302 was new in 68, and made comparable horsepower and more torque than the 289, which was the right choice in the Cougar. Finished in Ford corporate blue, it is the centerpiece of a nicely maintained engine bay. The air cleaner looks like it did in 1968 thanks to reproduction decals and a modern A/C compressor uses R134a refrigerant for easy maintenance. The transmission is a C4 3-speed automatic driving a sturdy 9-inch rear that spins a set of 3.00 gears for relaxed highway cruising. The floors are clean throughout with no glaring issues or signs of trouble. The single exhaust system sounds healthy, but subdued, as it should, and the gas tank appears to be a recently installed item. Beautiful Magnum 500 wheels wear perfectly sized 225/70/15 BFG radials that really fill the wheel wells. This car includes a build sheet, owners manual, title documentation, receipts, and other information so you can buy with confidence. All the performance of the Mustang, but in a more mature, luxury-oriented package, and for less money than a comparable Ford. Sounds good, doesnt it? Call today!
This 1954 Mercury Monterey Gasser isnt a car for just anyone, but the guys who were there know that it represents a special time in hot rod history that well never see again. Nostalgia being what it is, this cool hardtop fairly accurately re-creates the early 60s drag race experience in a slightly more user-friendly form that you can actually drive and enjoy on the street today. With a frame-off built and more than $40,000 in receipts, this wasnt a half-hearted project but rather a labor of love. If you were there, you will instantly recognize the look and while you dont see many Mercury Gassers, it certainly looks good dressed for combat. The body was smoothed and straightened, with many of the details being removed, including the door handles, side trim, and hood scoop/ornament. Nevertheless, its still easy to spot its Mercury DNA, from the faired-in headlights to the distinctive shape of the rear fender and quarter panels, to the taillights, which are some of the most beautiful of the era. The paint has a good shine, almost too good to be a race car, but thats kind of the point with this car. Theres not much chrome, and even the rear bumper has been painted to give it an industrial-strength look. Really, the only thing missing is some door art and a few larger sponsor decals, and suddenly its 1962 all over again. At first glance, youd think this is race car throughout, but then you notice just how beautifully crafted the interior really is. Sure, there are race-grade bucket seats with 5-point harnesses and a roll cage, but theres also a beautifully stitched headliner, gorgeous door panels that look straight out of the 50s, and a bright red dashboard with plenty of chrome trim. A custom billet aluminum insert hoses a full array of gauges and theres a monster tach up top where itll do the most good. As a nod to civility, theres also a center console with cup holders and an AM/FM/CD stereo system with remote control. The windows are Lexan and can be completely removed and the trick shifter manages a PowerGlide 2-speed automatic transmission, which has long been the transmission of choice for drag racers. The trunk isnt for storage any longer, now housing a custom fuel cell and a pair of auxiliary jerry cans, just in case. The original Y-block just wouldnt hold up to the stresses of the track, so theres a more familiar 283 cubic inch Chevy V8 in its place. With an .030 overbore, 9:1 compression, high output heads, and an Edelbrock intake and 4-barrel carburetor, its plenty potent but also docile enough to be friendly on the street. It runs on pump gas and definitely has a race-ready look with heavy-duty ignition wires and chrome open-element air cleaner. Red paint on the block is a nod to its FoMoCo history, but thats the only thing Blue Oval under the hood. The aforementioned PowerGlide feeds what might be the original 3.59-geared rear end, which hangs on leaf springs augmented with traction bars. Speedway Motors supplied the straight axle kit and theres a Vega steering box which works well. Disc brakes, custom fender well headers and side pipes, and modern shocks add up to a car thats traditional but still usable. Weld skinnies and fat Torque Thrusts have that old-school look and carry suitable big-n-little radials to complete the look. This car isnt for everyone, we know that. But if you were there and respect the era, this car will take you back without forcing you to go full race. Call today!
For all those Ford guys who wanted something like the Impala SS, this very clean 2004 Mercury Marauder is the answer. A big, rear-wheel-drive sedan with Fords most potent 4-cam V8, tight handling, and big brakes, the Marauder was a cool experiment that will surely find big appreciation in the future. Not all Marauders were black, but with a name like Marauder its an easy mistake to make. Silver was a late addition to the options list and it works well on the upscale Mercury, especially if you want to keep a low profile. Based on the infamous Grand Marquis, Ford designers kept the big sedans gently rounded profile, which was surely popular because of its resemblance to police cruisers, not despite it. A few special tweaks like the front and rear bumpers, a blacked-out grille, special headlights, and a bare minimum of chrome trim give the Marauder a unique look thats instantly identifiable as something beyond your average heavy-duty FoMoCo cruiser. Dutifully kept as a garage queen and showing 90,083 original miles, this particular Marauder looks extremely clean and its hard to believe its been almost 15 years since it was built. The silver paint is glossy and slick and shows virtually zero signs of use aside from the usual tiny chips that come from being driven. The headlights are not cracked, the bumpers fit well, and the few bits of chrome on the car look like theyve been fastidiously polished from day one. If you want one of these cars (and theyre not too easy to find) there cant be many nicer than this. Full-sized luxury was standard equipment, but the Marauder did get charcoal leather bucket seats and a console to keep with its sporting character. The upholstery remains in excellent condition and theres really nothing like the stretch-out room you get in one of these cars. The carpets, door panels, headliner, and dash are all in very good condition, as youd expect, and only the drivers seat really shows any signs of use at all. Marauders came only one way: loaded, so you get everything from power windows, locks, and seats, to a powerful climate control system, to cruise control, and even a set of power-adjustable pedals, which are extremely trick. White-faced gauges attempt to give the big Merc a sporting edge and small auxiliary gauges down on the bottom of the center console have an aftermarket performance look that was surely intentional. The sound system fills the cavernous interior with music and if youre looking for the ultimate road-trip warrior, look no further than this car with its massive back seat area, powerful A/C, and huge trunk. Like the rest of the interior, that looks completely untouched from new, including the special mats with hold-downs and a spare tire with its own cover. The Marauder used the Mustang Cobras 32-valve DOHC 4.6 liter V8 engine linked to a 4-speed automatic overdrive transmission. The 302 horsepower combination was potent, particularly at highway speeds where its virtually impossible to pass this car on the roll, I dont care what youre driving. Special calibrations help with low-end torque for the heavier Merc, but it still purrs with that precise mechanical sound thats so delightful in the Cobra and the exhaust note sounds like ripping silk. Everything is completely stock, right down to the hose clamps, so no worries about racing or abuse, and it runs like a new car. Underneath, the suspension was firmed up for Marauder duty, a disc brake was installed at each corner, and theres a true dual exhaust system with polished tips just for extra cool points. With polished 18-inch wheels and 255/55/18 rear performance radials, it rides and handles like a two-ton sports car. With a clean CarFax and expert maintenance, this is the nicest Marauder weve seen in years. If you missed your chance when they were new, now is the time to buy because theyre only going up from here. Call now!
Those with a limited budget should consider purchasing a project vehicle as an option to entering into classic car ownership.
Full-sized 70s luxury cars are heating up in the collector car market as the guys who knew them when they were younger are buying up the cars of their youth. For the guy whose family traveled with the Cat, this 1974 Mercury Grand Marquis Brougham should be a neat throwback to a time when luxury meant big V8s, couch-like seating, and a pillow-soft ride. If you like your coupes big and flashy, this Mercury is right for you. As long as a school bus and bright red, it proudly stands as a monument to the excesses of the 1970s. Were pretty sure the bright red paint is original and this car still looks great, suggesting that someone went the extra mile to take care of it even during the oil crisis in which it was born. The sheetmetal is in great shape, with sharp creases along the tops of the fenders, that hood thats probably six feet long all by itself, and long quarters that seem even longer thanks to trim-fitting fender skirts. There are a few thin spots, a bit of fading, but for a high-quality survivor, this car needs no apologies. The hidden headlights make it look a lot more like its big brother Lincoln and dont worry, theres plenty of bright chrome and stainless trim to make it look expensive, and its all in very good shape. Even the white vinyl top, which adds some great contrast, remains bright, clean, and with no clear issues underneath. You got genuine 6-passenger comfort in your Grand Marquis, and nobody will be complaining about the accommodations. The handsome off-white upholstery remains in good condition and offers that kind of all-day comfort that you just cant buy anymore. Like the exterior, the interior appears to be mostly original, so theres some mild discoloration in a few spots like the door arm rests, but also like the paint, it would be a crime to change any of it. Gauges cover only the basics, but some enterprising soul has added auxiliary gauges under the center stack, probably a good idea. This car also has just about every option Mercury offered in 1974, including A/C, power windows, locks, and seats, cruise control, a tilt steering column and an AM/FM stereo radio. Both the back seat and the trunk are massive, with the trunk area expensively upholstered in matching gray carpets. Ford gave you plenty of horsepower to move all this sheetmetal in the form of a 460 cubic inch V8. This is reportedly the cars original engine, and it is indeed effortless in everything that it does. Smooth, torquey, and able to consume vast quantities of interstate in a single stretch, this is a fantastic cruiser. Its still wearing original Ford Blue paint on the major components and aside from routine maintenance items, its quite original. Its backed by a C6 3-speed automatic transmission and a 9-inch rear end with towering highway gears inside. The underside is just as clean as youd hope on a survivor like this, and includes a mellow-sounding single exhaust system that just whispers along at speed. Factory steel wheels with Mercury hubcaps are the right choice, as are the recent whitewall radials. One of the feature cars in Collectable Automobile magazine, this clean, handsome Grand Marquis is a great entry-level hobby car with a strong pedigree and a lot of character. Call today!
Both the Mustang and the Cougar grew in 1971, but the Cougar seems to wear the extra size better than its cousin. This 1973 Mercury Cougar XR7 convertible has a sporty look that works with a luxurious interior to create a unique kind of muscle car, and with a rare 351C Cobra Jet V8, its more than just pretty. Subtlety was lacking in the early 70s but this relatively muscular cat keeps its performance credentials on the down-low. The chiseled good looks of the Cougar reflect both the pony car and Lincoln DNA in its family, and depending on the angle, its both sporty and elegant. The narrow front grille with power dome hood are certainly reminiscent of Lincolns of the same period, while the kicked-up quarter panels behind the doors are pure Mustang, making for a very attractive package. It was repainted not too long ago and has a great shine and good sheetmetal underneath, a perfect Sunday afternoon cruiser that doesnt need any special attention. A chrome trunk rack is an unusual accessory but we have to admit that we like how it looks, and a set of Magnum 500 wheels keeps it looking aggressive. Nobody will mistake it for anything else from behind, as the downturned taillights and massive chrome bumper are unique to this model, and it still carries factory Cougar badging. If youve driven an early 70s Mustang, youll feel right at home in the mostly original interior. The bucket seats are a little wider and a little softer, but the array of round gauges are pure pony car. The interior is showing some signs of age, but its still serviceable and were undecided on whether wed preserve or restore the seats. The rest is pretty darned nice, including the carpets and door panels, so leave those alone. The gauges are still bright and crisp and the woodgrained applique still looks bright. For entertainment, it serves up the original AM/FM radio and the options list includes power windows, A/C (works, but needs a charge), and a tilt steering column. The top is power-actuated and stows with the touch of a button and is probably only a few years old. Fords 351 cubic inch Cleveland Cobra Jet V8 was torquey and very user-friendly in the Cougar, offering good performance without being fussy. Given the condition of the engine bay, we have every reason to believe this is the cars original powerplant and has probably never been out of the car. Ford Blue paint is nicely preserved and like the interior, it would probably be a mistake to start restoring things. Clean it up but dont go too far. Power steering and power front disc brakes were standard equipment on the heavier, more luxury-oriented Cougar, and it exhales through a proper dual exhaust system with both mufflers and resonators, so it never sounds too aggressive. An FMX 3-speed automatic transmission is unobtrusive in operation and it carries a heavy-duty 9-inch rear end with towering 2.75 gears, making this a fantastic highway cruiser. The undercarriage is pretty original, but this car has spent most of its life in a warm climate so while its a little grungy, you wont be worried about its structural strength while youre out cruising. Magnum 500 wheels can make even a school bus look sporty, so theyre perfect for the Cougar and carry 205/70/14 BFGoodrich radials at all four corners. A nice combination of performance and luxury, this Cougar ragtop suggests that you dont have to give up fun when you grow up. Call today!
Even today there probably arent many 4-door sedans that can keep up with this incredible 2003 Mercury Marauder. Augmented with a rare Trilogy supercharger, it takes Fords stealth ship to an entirely new level. With a neat installation and no visible modifications outside, this is one of the coolest late-model sleepers weve seen. Most Marauders, like this one, were dressed in black and it seems to suit them just fine. This one has led a good life and despite it being 15 years old, it still has a commanding presence that seems to part traffic like the Red Sea. Its resemblance to a police cruiser probably doesnt hurt, but seeing this big, black sedan pull up in the rear-view mirror can make anyone uneasy. It isnt perfect, and a professional detailing would pay big dividends if you really want to step it up a notch. All the original trim and badges are intact so everyone will know what it is as it slips past in traffic, and few will notice the subtle S/C badges on the flanks that give a hint as to whats going on under the hood. Heck, this one hasnt even been lowered! It does have a few decals from Fastlane Motorsports (who installed the supercharger) but again, nobody will notice until its entirely too late. Black leather was standard in the Marauder and it shows incredibly well for the age and mileage. Everything Ford could think of was standard equipment, including power windows, locks, seats, and mirrors, automatic climate control, cruise control, tilt steering column, and special white-faced gauges that were unique to the Marauder. The only transmission you could get in the Marauder was a quick-thinking 4-speed automatic, but it included buckets and a center console, which houses a pair of auxiliary gauges for the supercharger installation. As a full-sized sedan, theres plenty of room for everyone and given the horsepower on tap, the extra weight of passengers probably wont have any effect on the performance. This car is deceptively fast. And yes, you do get a giant trunk as part of the deal, making this one heck of a car for road trips when you need to get there in a hurry! The Marauder packed a version of the Mustang Cobras 4.6 liter DOHC V8 and cranked out more than 300 horsepower in stock form. They were bloody fast. But in case thats not enough this one packs a rather rare Trilogy supercharger, which was known as the neatest, cleanest installation for these cars. Looking every bit like an OEM installation, it gives the deep-breathing 4-valve V8 some serious oomph, both off the line and at the high end; youve probably not driven anything like it because something this big shouldnt be this fast. It starts and idles like a stock Marauder and the nearly silent supercharger doesnt advertise its presence like a lot of other blowers, adding to the stealth factor. Theres also an upgraded alternator, Optima battery, and a custom exhaust system to make the most of the performance enhancements. The 4-speed automatic transmission snaps through the gears as fast as the needle spins around the tach and its been fitted with a set of oversized vented and cross-drilled discs up front to manage the added horsepower. Factory polished wheels look great and carry fat 18-inch performance tires that do their best to hook it up. Extremely well documented and 100% ready to rumble, this is one of the coolest Marauders weve seen. If youre a Blue Oval performance fan who likes big luxury sedans, this one will check all the boxes. Call today!
Flathead Fords are still some of the most entertaining old cars you can own. Quick, agile, handsome, and rugged, cars like this 1946 Mercury coupe have been favorites for decades because they do everything well and look great doing it. Owned since new by the same family in warm South America, this handsome Mercury coupe looks like it just rolled out of an old black and white photograph from the late 40s. The basic profile is pretty much the same opera coupe that Ford was building before the war, but the unique Mercury front end gives it a clean, grown-up look is one of Fords better designs. Paint and bodywork are in decent shape and it might have been repainted decades ago, so theres plenty of patina but nothing that needs immediate attention. Instead of metallic two-stage urethane, it has a softer shine that looks like period enamel, another sign that the car has been loved all its life rather than squirreled away as a collectors item. Yes, there are plenty of nicks and chips, but patina has to be earned and it works rather well here. Panel fit is quite, the big pointed hood fits well, and the light color reveals neat details like the body lines around the fender trim and the oval rear window. Lots of stainless trim and a few chrome bits, all of which is in good order, make it look far more expensive than it is. Theres a surprising amount of room in the coupes bright interior. Brown leatherette upholstery has a very 1940s look and the patterns are simple and unpretentious. Matching door panels, tan carpets, and a correct headliner give it an authentic look. The instrument panel has a large, round speedometer and four smaller auxiliary gauges, all with a jaunty 40s font, and theres a matching clock in front of the passenger. Radios were still expensive options in 1946 and sadly this one doesnt work, but this car does carry an under-dash heater/defroster unit that should be quite effective. The steering wheel is in shockingly good condition, including the chrome horn ring, and the plastic center grille for the radio speaker is also in nice shape. The trunk is positively massive, with cardboard side panels and a full-sized spare tire assembly. But the real reason these cars are perennial favorites is the 239 cubic inch flathead V8 under the hood. Its rated at just 100 horsepower, but it feels like much more than that out on the road. Inhaling through the stock 2-barrel carburetor and oil bath air cleaner, it has a distinctive sound that Ford fans have loved for years. Twin coolant hoses from the cylinder heads give it a nice, symmetrical look and later flatheads like this have proven themselves for decades with unbeatable reliability. It remains quite stock and while it isnt detailed, it is instantly recognizable and there are a lot of recent parts, including all the usual tune-up stuff. The 3-speed manual transmission with column-mounted shifter has well-chosen ratios to make the most of the V8s power band and the original banjo-style rear end hangs out back. The undercarriage is tidy if not detailed and its always nice to see an old car riding on correct bias-ply tires for the right look, although these should probably be replaced if youre going to do any serious driving. Very affordably priced, this 1946 Mercury is one of those great old cars that will make you smile every time you fire it up. Call today!
When was the last time you saw an early Mercury Marquis? Fords intermediate brand focused on luxury, and it would be OK to look at this 1972 Mercury Marquis as a bargain-priced Lincoln. Massive, black, and powered by a giant V8 engine, it is a true American land yacht. And since its lived its entire life with the same family, its been very well maintained and shows just 55,653 original miles. Basic black is always a good choice on a luxury sedan, but in 1972, not many people chose it. There were, of course, plenty of browns, beiges, and greens, which makes this one stand out without shouting about it. The paint is original and still looks quite good for being 46 years old, offering a decent shine and only modest signs of use and age. Not perfect, but certainly a dignified car in middle age and you could probably buff out a pretty good shine with some elbow grease. Its truly massive and the design language is a neat mix of Ford and Lincoln, which suits its spot in the lineup just fine. Theres a lot of chrome, of course, and it accentuates the squared-off nose and long flanks without looking over-done. Hidden headlights were still a thing in 1972 and the hood ornament looks an awful lot like Lincolns cross, which was surely intentional. Theres a black vinyl top to add some formality and for being original, its shockingly nice. Most of the chrome is good to excellent aside from the grille between the taillights, which is showing its age. The red brocade fabric interior is just beautifully preserved and a great contrast to the black paint. Yes, theres a little fading on the carpets, which is all but inevitable where red is concerned, but youll note the wonderful diamond-pleated seating surfaces are just fine and show no splits or tears. Likewise, the door panels and dash pad are not cracked or dried out and even the steering wheel shows no signs of deterioration. Fords familiar square gauges give a basic view of the hardware, but this is a luxury car, not a sports car, so what do you really need? Its loaded with features like A/C (needs to be serviced), power seat, power windows, cruise control, tilt column, remote mirrors, and an AM/FM stereo radio. Rear seat space is massive, as is the trunk, which still carries its original carpe set and a spare tire assembly with jack. Fords mighty 429 cubic inch V8 provides motive force and its pretty impressive. Even though smog rules had taken the edge off all engines, the 429 remained effortless in the Marquis. Its nearly silent, pulls like an electric motor, and simply goes about its business without calling any attention to itself. And with so few miles, its in excellent condition and runs great. Turn the key and it fires easily and theres some evidence of routine maintenance throughout the engine bay. You could spend a weekend tidying things up and this would be one heck of a preservation class car, too! The C6 3-speed automatic transmission shifts unobtrusively and with towering highway gears in the 9-inch rear end, its a car just built for road trips. The undercarriage is original but tidy, having never seen winter weather and it sits on big whitewall radials that help with the pillow-soft ride. This is a lot of sheetmetal for the money, and its an unusual car in nice original condition. Altogether, that makes for an easy way to get into the hobby. Call today!
The ultimate lead sled, the archetype, the one that everyone wants, this 1949 Mercury coupe defines the breed. Frenched, lowered, smoothed, fender skirts, it has all the traditional custom styling cues, all wrapped in a gorgeous two-tone paint job that ideally suits the long, low custom. Paired with the bulletproof reliability of a fuel-injected LS2 and a totally custom interior, this is a lead sled thats very easy to love. This car could have been the prototype for every Mercury lead sled built, incorporating some of the most traditional modifications and a few tasteful touches that make it unique. The list of body mods is extensive, ranging from a nosed and decked hood to the frenched headlights to the shaved door handles to the custom grille, which appears to be from a Desoto, a popular modification back in the day. A custom pearl white and pink paint job grabs all the attention, although the point of a custom is to blur the lines so you cant find the mods. The paint glows from within and has a sugary look that makes this car insanely appealing. Big chrome bumpers offset all that luscious paint with a big of flash, plus the stainless lakes pipes that make this car look long and low. Fender skirts are part of the recipe, and there are a few neatly-done pinstripes just for accent. Bright pink and white bucket seats are the perfect complement to the high-visibility exterior, and the overstuffed seats mean this is a fantastic road trip car. With a lightly modified Mercury dashboard full of VDO gauges, it doesnt seem to be trying too hard. Most of the original knobs and switches were maintained, with some being repurposed for other functions like the A/C, which has a custom valence below the dash for a clean look. A tilt steering column carries a leather-wrapped wheel, theres a custom center console with an armrest from a 60s Thunderbird, power window switches, and the air suspension controls. The in-dash A/C uses modern components and R134a refrigerant to deliver contemporary performance and theres a AM/FM/CD stereo in the upper console, right below a clock mounted in the center. Under-dash lighting gives it a cool glow at night, and the trunk is neatly finished without losing functionality, as it carries a full-sized spare tire. For motivation, this one uses a 6.0 liter LS2 V8 with factory fuel injection and engine management. This might be the best-running lead sled weve ever featured, and the highest praise we can offer is that it runs and drives like it was factory built. Turn the key and it fires, it idles smoothly no matter how hot it is, and the integration is seamless. Theres a big aluminum radiator to keep it cool, new accessories tucked in close to the block, and even the firewall and inner fenders were finished to show standards with custom pinstripes. Custom long-tube headers feed a nicely fabricated dual exhaust system with Flowmaster mufflers, so it sounds like performance when youre cruising the fairground. The transmission is a 4L70E 4-speed automatic, so its an effortless cruiser even with somewhat punchy 4.10 gears in the Ford 9-inch rear end. Air Ride makes it smooth, the 4-link rear end keeps it planted, and disc brakes keep it safe. 15-inch steelies with Oldsmobile hubcaps are the ideal period custom choice and they carry modern wide whitewall radials, as youd expect. A lot of customs look great but dont drive very well, but this Mercury truly runs as good as it looks. Call today!
When Mustangs grow up, they want to be Cougars. With the same long nose, short deck styling as the Mustang, but in a slightly larger, more luxurious package, this 1970 Mercury Cougar XR7 offers grown-up performance for people who like a little luxury with their muscle. Of course, perks like A/C, a vinyl top, and an automatic transmission only help the Cougars case, and this one has the bonus of having been used in the film Driving Miss Daisy. Cool, right? Recently refinished in what appears to be its original code 2 Light Ivy Yellow, the Cougars lines are clean and instantly recognizable. From the finned front grille and hidden headlights to the kick-up behind the doors, it looks powerful. It doesnt have any add-ons or stripes, which we like, and the crease that runs from nose to the rear wheel arches gives it a tight look that Mustangs lack. The beautifully restored vinyl top fits well and looks great, with no wrinkles or tears in the material. The paint is well applied over super straight sheetmetal, and the bright finish reveals that a lot of time was invested in getting everything blocked and flat. All the chrome and trim has been polished up or replaced, proper Cougar badges affixed to the quarters, and the full-width taillight is in superb condition. The all-black interior was the most popular choice in 1970, and it still looks awesome today. The seats and door panels might just be original, and maybe even the carpets, which are showing some age. Nothing major, mind you, and it would be a mistake to restore anything. The gauges show bright, clear markings and a tach is a nice find in a luxury-oriented car like this. Options include factory A/C (needs to be serviced), a console with a T-handle shifter, and a rim-blow horn that has a reasonably convincing woodgrain to it. The aftermarket AM/FM/cassette stereo radio works properly and is a nice upgrade, and for the 1970s, that was state-of-the-art in in-car entertainment. Even the trunk is nicely finished with a reproduction mat and full-sized spare tire. Power for the big cat comes from a 351 cubic inch Cleveland V8, which is a perfect fit in the Cougars engine bay. A 4-barrel carburetor gives the big Cat surprisingly sharp reflexes and a big hit of power at almost any speed. It has been recently detailed with Ford Blue paint, reproduction decals, and a few other bits that keep it looking authentic. The rest of the engine bay is tidy, and you could work on taking it up another notch without too much effort. Underneath, the chassis is clean and well-maintained, with a great-sounding dual exhaust system whose tips are just barely visible beneath the rear valence, again emphasizing the Cougars subtle muscularity. The C4 3-speed automatic transmission shifts cleanly and theres a fresh gas tank hanging out back. Factory steel wheels carry standard hubcaps and a set of 215/70/14 Uniroyal whitewall radials. The car is nicely documented with proof that it was used as Morgan Freemans daughters car in Driving Miss Daisy and we have to admit we like the combination of Mustang DNA and big car luxury that this Cougar represents.

For all those Ford guys who wanted something like the Impala SS, this unusual burgundy 2004 Mercury Marauder is the answer. A big, rear-wheel-drive sedan with Fords most potent V8, reasonable handling, and big brakes, the Marauder was a cool experiment that will surely find big appreciation in the future. Contrary to popular belief, not all Marauders were black, and this Dark Toreador Red Marauder has an upscale look that doesnt need to scream to be noticed. Based on the infamous Grand Marquis, Ford designers kept the big sedans gently rounded profile, which was surely popular because of its resemblance to police cruisers, not despite it. A few special tweaks like the front and rear bumpers, a blacked-out grille, special headlights, and a bare minimum of chrome trim give the Marauder a unique look thats instantly identifiable as something beyond your average heavy-duty FoMoCo cruiser. Dutifully kept as a garage queen and showing just 32,728 original miles, this particular Marauder looks fantastic and its hard to believe its been fifteen years since it was built, because the paint is glossy and slick and shows virtually zero signs of use aside from a few small chips on the lower valence, which is to be expected. The headlights are clear, the bumpers are not cracked, and the few bits of chrome on the car look like theyve been fastidiously polished from day one. If you want one of these cars, and theyre not too easy to find, there cant be many nicer than this. Full-sized luxury was standard equipment, but the Marauder did get bucket seats and a console to keep with its sporting character. The charcoal gray leather remains in excellent condition and theres really nothing like the stretch-out room you get in one of these cars. The carpets, door panels, headliner, and dash are all in like new condition, as youd expect. Marauders came only one way: loaded, so you get everything from power windows, locks, and seats (heated up front!), to a powerful climate control system, to cruise control, and even a set of power-adjustable pedals, which are extremely trick. White-faced gauges attempt to give the big Merc a sporting edge and small auxiliary gauges down on the bottom of the center console have an aftermarket performance look that was surely intentional. Custom embroidered floor mats are also like new, and if youre looking for the ultimate road-trip warrior, look no further than this car with its massive back seat area. Theres also an equally giant trunk that looks completely untouched from new, including the ultra-rare cargo organizer under the floor. The Marauder used the Mustang Cobras 32-valve DOHC 4.6 liter V8 engine linked to a 4-speed automatic overdrive transmission. The combination was potent, particularly at highway speeds where its virtually impossible to pass this car on the roll, I dont care what youre driving. Special calibrations help with low-end torque for the heavier Merc, but it still purrs with that precise mechanical sound thats so delightful in the Cobra and the exhaust note sounds like ripping silk. Everything is completely stock, right down to the hose clamps, so no worries about racing or abuse, and it runs like a new car. Underneath, the suspension was firmed up for Marauder duty, a disc brake was installed at each corner, and theres a true dual exhaust system with polished tips just for extra cool points. With polished 18-inch wheels and giant 245/55/18 BFGoodrich radials, it rides and handles like a brand new car. With only one owner and low mileage, this is one of the nicest Marauders weve seen in years. Only 270 Dark Toreador Red Marauders were built with heated seats, making this one very rare Merc.

A 1959 Mercury M-100 is already a head-turning sight, but this one is far more desirable than just rarity. Its a true one-of-a-kind restomod that has beautiful paint, a full custom luxury A/C interior, a big Lincoln V8, overdrive transmission, fully independent suspension, and so much more. So look over all the details on this fresh build and think about all the awards you want to win. Youll love the way people will approach this pickup thinking its a spectacularly-presented Ford F-100, and then youll watch their delight as they see the Mercury badges. This is one of those rare pickups developed primarily for Canadian dealers with no Ford outlet nearby. But the history and those bold Mercury badges are not what make this such a stellar machine. Its the fact that the consignor/constructor spent over $120k making sure that every inch of this truck is a memorable machine. The House of Kolors True Blue gives the gentle curves an almost gem-like quality even in the truck bed. And the Ingot Silver Metallic borrowed directly from modern Fords continues to make the super-straight sheetmetal look like precious metal. Plus, we know you absolutely love the air-brushed steel details that separate these two colors in a similar pattern to some of Fords most iconic 50s sedans. The bumpers were eliminated with flush panels, the door handles are shaved, and other trim was expertly removed. This not only adds to the trucks overall sleekness, but also it means the other brightwork can command the right attention. It includes the chrome grille, trim around the desirable wraparound back window, and the distinct Mercury badging. Plus, the Billet Specialties Magnitude wheels not only add to the shine, but also the 17/18-inch front/rear stagger over the lowered suspension gives this a true street-eating stance. Youve seen custom interiors before, but none have been as carefully crafted as this. The bench seat has the correct bolstering for individual comfort. The leather looks like a bomber jacket and feels just as soft. And this is fully coordinated with the custom headliner, carpeting, lower dash, and door panels. And speaking of the door panels, look at the classic style speaker grilles these are a custom piece that keep the vintage atmosphere while allowing for modern speakers behind it. This kind of thoughtful integration is everywhere, including on the power windows, power locks, cup holders, and AM/FM/CD stereo with aux input. Youll even love how the air conditioning control have been added to the bright blue dash. But this custom is also a true drivers machine. Thats why you have a Billet Specialties steering wheel mounted on a chrome Ididit tilt column. And beyond that, the bright panel gives you a full set of crisp Dolphin gauges. The engine bay continues this award-worthy arrangement. The smooth blue fender walls and firewall funnel all your attention to the highly polished total presentation. A premium truck deserves a premium motor, and so youre looking at a big block borrowed from a Lincoln. The 460 V8 was bored to 472ci, and it was rebuilt for extra performance and fortification. This includes a large Edelbrock 750 CFM four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock intake, Edelbrock heads, MSD ignition, and ceramic coated headers. Of course, youre going to want to do more than just listen to the rumble of the dual exhaust; follow its path in the undercarriage photos. There youre going to see the kind of amazing paintwork that many people dont even have on their exteriors. And it continues to look so fresh because theres only 450 miles on this build. Of course, youre also amazed by the huge list of suspension upgrades. They include the tubular A-arm front end, full adjustable coilovers, and four-wheel disc brakes. And when was the last time you saw a truck with a Jaguar-style Heidts Independent rear with inboard brakes!? Oh yes, this is truly an amazing build. And its even easy to show this Mercury off everywhere with great features like the aluminum radiator, power steering, and four-speed automatic transmission w/overdrive. Theres just so much to go over on this one that we dont have the room for it all. So give us a call for all the details. But you already know one-of-a-kinds like this rarely leave their creators hands. So dont miss this opportunity, call today!
This car is the last of the performance-oriented Cougars. It established the image that would stick with the brand before they started sliding more toward the luxury end of the spectrum. Its a serious Pony car with a powerful 351 Cleveland and unique styling that distinguishes it from the crowd with a set of taillights that would become iconic. Check it out. This car is gorgeous in Black and chrome! From the side you can see the aggressive, angular cut to the body with its tapered nose, deep chin spoiler, bulging rear fenders, and a wing mounted up in the air flow on the trunk. Up front that unique grill has a super clean look with vertical slots in black and chrome concealing hideaway headlights. The center section of the grill feeds back into a hood scoop that leaves little doubt about what this cars intentions are. The front fenders have a crisp and clean upper edge that bends down over the front, framing the grill and blending into the sharp looking bumper. A black vinyl roof contrasting with the glossy black paint makes the car look even more low and lean. The back of the car looks awesome with a set of taillights that became an instant classic and have become copied and mimicked to this very day. Open the door and you will be treated to a nicely appointed Black interior that incorporates upscale touches without losing its performance orientation. The door panel sets the tone with a simple door pull strap at the top with a rectangular patterned center section. Then you find rocker switches for the power windows and locks just over the grill for the stereo speaker. High backed bucket seats are comfortable and there is a vinyl wrapped three spoke steering wheel with a Cougar prowling across the center. Behind it is a stock dash board nicely dressed out with a wood grained look. There are four large gauges with the speedo and the tach in the center flanked by the fuel and engine gauges on either side. More rocker switches control accessories at the top of the center console with vents for the air conditioning system just below them. A T-handle shifter for the automatic transmission rises from the center console and there is a nice armrest with storage compartment under it. Pop that hood and you will find a healthy 351 Cleveland motor nestled down in the engine bay. 1970 was the first year that this engine was available in the Cougar, and this car is believed to still have its original motor still nestled down in the engine bay. An oval Edelbrock air cleaner has a finned, black and brushed aluminum air topper which matches the black and brushed aluminum valve covers for a really great look. Even the A/C compressor matches with a finned cover on it. There is a Holley 4-barrel carburetor feeding the stock Cleveland intake and heads with long tube headers getting the spent gasses out and headed back through dual Flowmaster mufflers. Power steering and a beefy front sway bar provide for good handling and power front disc brakes let you haul this car back down from speed with confidence. The car sits on Magnum 500 wheels with 215/70R15 red line tires all around. A muscle car that you dont see every day. Powerful, good looking, and comfortable. Come on down and check it out. You may decide to take this Cougar home and then out on the prowl.

With its cool coordination, unique style, a touch of hot rod flair, and averaging less than 1,200 miles annually, this 1954 Mercury Monterey is a distinct and attention-grabbing cruiser offered at quite a nice price. Mercurys just seem to always get noticed on the classic car scene. As the premium end of Fords lineup, these upper-level Monterey coupes were offered exclusively as hardtops, and they showcased this style with brightwork surrounding every inch of this pillarless roof. And speaking of brightwork, those bumpers prove they are true chrome kings with a shine so mirror-like that the ladies will use it to check their makeup. The other reason why theyll be thinking about applying lipstick is thanks to the glossy red paint. There was a recent professional application of Bittersweet red, and it has a level of luster that is exactly what you want on a 50s cruiser like this. And the black roof has just as much gloss to create a terrific two-tone.

The sale even comes with the rear fender skirts to ensure you look like a proper 1950s premium street machine. The same red and black two-tone you love on the exterior is continued inside the coupe. It looks especially nice on the door panels where the streak of black is equal parts premium and sporty. The same goes for the two-tone seats that have plenty of room to carry family and friends. And while this is a great premium cruiser for everyone, its the driver who gets to enjoy this the most. Thats why you not only got the artful steering wheel and long speedometer, but also the space between those has all the essential controls. And in a cool interior like this, the additions of the auxiliary gauge trio and Hurst floor shifter heighten the Saturday night cruiser feeling. Under the hood is something special. 1954 was the debut of Fords new V8 the Y-block that would make cars like the Thunderbird famous. This 256 cubic-inch displacement was only available in a Mercury and only in 1954. Plus, this one is also topped by the correct Holley four-barrel downdraft carburetor. So this motor is not only a great one to talk about, but its a great powerhouse for driving. You have a glasspack-style dual exhaust that gives this V8 a nice tone, and the three-speed manual transmission gives you good control over it all. Add in power steering and power brakes, and this is a terrific period-correct cruiser. Complete with owners manual, this is the distinctive classic thats a well-coordinated balance of premium and sporty. And at a price like this, you know this total package is irresistible.
